FILTERING ENHANCEMENT ON MEMBER PORTS
Network Security illustration
 

Layer 2 filtering has been enhanced on traffic coming from member ports. IPv6 Router advertisement and Router Solicitation are now dropped by the platform.

 

Moreover, flooded packets by the platform, especially broadcast and multicast are rate-limited. Finally, frames having an EtherType other than IPv4 or IPv6 are dropped.

 

A specific monitoring allows counting rate-limited or dropped packets per filter. Then we can check whether there is a member having a traffic pattern that doesn't meet the technical specifications.
